In your <Form> tag you are using enctype="multipart/form-data", when user submits the form are they uploading any file, if not please remove that line and try form submit again.

For tag will look like this:

<form action="contactform.asp" method="post" name="contactform">

I remove the enctype="multipart/form-data" tag I did this also before I call expert-tek.
I install this <form action="contactform.asp" method="post" name="contactform">


and I still do not get a response form the html page.
even though it is transfing the page to the contactform.asp I am still not getting a response from name or email ..

also I have an html form (duplicating contact.html) inside the contactform.asp if the contact.html page is not filled out ....It works.

Ok, Try one more thing. Change the form tag to <form action="contactform.asp" method="get" name="contactform">

and on contactform.asp do

response.write("test: " + request("name") + "  " + request("email"))
